Witcher Developer Working on “New and Different” IP

RPG fans just got a reason to get excited.

This week, The Witcher 1 and 2 developer CD Projekt announced via their blog “We’re looking for people who would rather work on an entirely new and different IP.” The developer failed to mention any specifics about the upcoming project, but promised it would fall under the same category of “complex, non-linear, and mature RPG games” they’ve beccome well-known for after their creation of the Witcher titles.

And while we don’t know exactly what the new IP will be about or entail, they did mention this: “No matter if it’s guns or swords, we’re just having a good time here.”

The Witcher was originally a PC game, finding its way to consoles earlier this year when The Witcher 2 was released on both PC the Xbox 360. The game has received overwhelmingly good reviews, often argued to be one of the best RPGs currently on the market.

At this point, it’s totally speculation if it will be another RPG set in a fantasy world or not, but one has to think it’s likely the company has looked at non-fantasy RPGs such as Fallout or Mass Effect and taken note of their success. Could their next game be a futuristic departure from the norm? It’s anybody’s guess. But rest assured, if it’s anything like the Witcher, it’ll be amazing.
